Posted on 03/18/2020 7:38:29 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
Groceries began reappearing on American store shelves this week, thanks to the strength of a supply chain that includes farmers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers all of whom are literally risking their lives to stay on duty.
A crucial part of that supply chain is the American trucker, who makes sure that goods are delivered in a timely fashion. That is always the case, but it is especially true in the sudden global emergency we face today.

Media will spin this some how.
A bunch of people who never really get the appreciation that’s due them.
Looked down upon and ridiculed by our coastal elites.
Starbucks and Whole Foods would be empty without them.
Thank you, Guys and Gals. Stay safe out there!
I wish this were true here in Colorado. Shelves have been bare for weeks.
When this stuff first started getting serious I told my wife the people we most need to keep working and supporting are the truckers. If they shut down the entire supply chain shuts down then the riots start.
Quite true. If you bought it a truck brought it!
truckers are one of the unsung heroes of our country, as are the folks who come out in at all times day and night and all kinds of weather and temperatures to repair our water delivery systems, our electrical power delivery systems, sewer systems, and our internet and telephone communications systems, as are the EMTs and doctors and nurses who help keep us alive ...
Et tu Breitbart? I am all for honoring truckers, farmers, shop keepers, etc... but this overblown Chinese flu nonsense is so far out of proportion to the actual risks that it is absolute insanity.
The last time truckers were really appreciated in general culture was like the late 70s.
I saw a huge semi trailer parked at the Safeway loading dock yesterday and the meat cases were back to being full. I thought about those great people keeping the lifeblood coming to us.
Also all the unsung people in the factories that manufacture the food as well as all the workers in the many distribution centers and warehouses all over the country.
Let’s not forget all the workers in the myriad data centers and on the cell towers all over the land who keep these bits flowing.
Without a doubt.
God bless our hard working truckers.
God bless them.
Truckers are keeping this nation alive.
Reliance on any one system is a bad idea. I am of the opinion that the US rail system is nearing the breaking point. We simply need more train tracks and distribution centers.
Worth some Chick fil a
And for the minimum wage people who work those stops, too.
Meanwhile, the national association that represents independent truckers is all over the governor of Pennsylvania for his decision to get this CLOSE ALL THE HIGHWAY REST AREAS IN THE STATE.
